Developing end markets for FOGO-derived products

Market development strategy

The food organics and garden organics (FOGO) market development strategy was commissioned by the Waste Authority to inform stakeholders of market barriers and opportunities for FOGO-derived products.

The strategy and related documents can be found on the FOGO Resources page, under ‘Reports’.

Rollout plan

The Waste Authority, supported by the FOGO Reference Group, develops annual plans to support the rollout of food organics and garden organics (FOGO) kerbside collection systems in the Perth and Peel regions.

The FOGO rollout plan 2023‒24 outlines five key focus areas:

  • Market development
  • FOGO processing
  • Local government services
  • Engagement and education
  • Foundation actions


FOGO Reference Group

The FOGO Reference Group supports the Waste Authority with the planning and rollout of FOGO kerbside collection services. It includes members from State Government, local government, regional councils, the organics industry and the waste sector.

Online information sessions

These support sessions are run jointly by the Waste Authority, Department of Water and Environmental Regulation and the FOGO Reference Group. Details of our past and upcoming sessions can be found on our Let’s go FOGO page.


Our FOGO resources page provides guidance, reports and case studies to support the rollout of FOGO services. This includes publications on:
